I don't think an appeal will help, although I very much like the idea of the shot. I suspect foreground clutter is just one of several possible rejection reasons (though probably the least valid). For me, the bigger issue is that the train - and in particular the head end of the lead locomotive - isn't in sharp focus. This shot called for either tack sharp focus on the train, or serious bokeh on the train, and you don't have either. It's a very nice shot as is - I just don't think it's an RP shot (for better or for worse).
